Master Gives Us Everything
(Minghui.org) I turned 50 at the beginning of 2006. Although I was computer illiterate and knew only a few Chinese characters, I set up a small Dafa materials production site with the help of a technically savvy practitioner.
While learning the necessary skills needed to keep the production site running, I’ve produced Dafa truth-clarification materials. Nothing, including holidays, keeps me from serving the needs of fellow practitioners.
Besides cultivating diligently, most of my time is spent on producing Dafa materials. My family members understand the importance of what I am doing and try not to disturb me. They even help me when I need it.
Achieving Computer Literacy
When I noticed that the technically skilled practitioner was too busy to study the Fa, I decided to become computer literate—although I was told that I lacked the basic knowledge. I did not take this as rejection and asked to be taught the steps. However, since some English words were used, I was lost. Fortunately, another practitioner gave me a tutorial she had made. She demonstrated the steps once, and I was ready to help other practitioners.
Even to this day, I do the exercises and attend group Fa-study in the morning, while my afternoon is set aside to help other practitioners. I teach them the basics about maintaining their computers and the operation of their mobile phones.
A well-educated 60-year-old-practitioner took only a few days to become computer literate, although she did have problems memorizing some English terms.
“What sort of higher education did you get?” I wondered to myself. “You’re taking notes as I teach you, but you still haven’t learned how to use what I’ve taught. You really are slow.”
Then I thought, “Am I looking externally? What attachments make me think that way? Is it jealousy? Am I looking down on another practitioner? Everyone can practice Falun Dafa, regardless of their education or age. There must be some attachments I have to relinquish.”
After I looked within and changed my attitude, the practitioner told me that she finally understood all that was needed and set up a material production site.
The Power of Dafa
More than a dozen practitioners in my area were arrested in April 2016. It was reported that the police had tapped their phones and monitored them for days. A few practitioners who often come to my house were among those arrested.
That scared me, and I worried about being arrested after leaving my house. Then I just let go of the fear and decided to attend group Fa-study.
Before leaving, I surveyed my room. There were four laptops, two printers, and more than ten mobile phones that belonged to other practitioners.
“These instruments are used to tell people about Dafa,” I thought. “No one can move them. Whoever moves them will commit a crime and be punished.”
Master said: “If you are not afraid, the factor that would make you afraid will cease to exist.” (“Eliminate Your Last Attachment(s)” from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
I remembered something from when I went to Tiananmen Square in Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Dafa in 2001. When I walked through the Square, I recited Master's Fa while I shouted, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” My voice rang above the Square. The other practitioner who had come with me was arrested, but it was as if no one had seen me.
To be on the safe side, I recited Master’s Fa in my mind when I left home, and no one bothered me.
The Truth Can No Longer Be Hidden
At the wedding of a former classmate's son in May 2016, everyone marveled at how young I looked. They wanted to know what cosmetics I used. I told them that I practiced Dafa.
I shared Master's Fa with them: “Those practices that cultivate both mind and body make one look very young in appearance, and one looks quite different from one’s actual age.” (Zhuan Falun)
A neighbor, who was also a former classmate, asked me if I had been detained for practicing Falun Dafa and if I was tortured.
“I was detained twice,” I said. “I was tortured and was close to death eight years ago. The captain of the domestic security division burned my face with an electric baton.”
She asked why I did not renounce Dafa, especially since the regime banned it. She could not understand why I would suffer such torture.
“As you all know,” I said, “I used to have many health issues, including liver and stomach problems. After consulting with many doctors for a decade, my health worsened. After practicing Dafa, however, I recovered from all that ailed me.”
I continued, “I have practiced Falun Dafa for 20 years and have returned to good health. My soul has been purified and my mind is no longer troubled.”
After I talked about the staged Tiananmen Square self-immolation and other lies published by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), this neighbor quit the Party and its two affiliates.
